Have you ever wanted to change the filter text in your WooCommerce online store but didn’t know how to do it? If yes, you’ve come to the right place. In this blog, we’ll discuss a step-by-step guide on how to change the filter text in your WooCommerce online store. By the end of this blog, you’ll know how to give your store a personalized touch with the filter text.
Step 1: Access Your Functions.php File
The first step in changing your filter text in WooCommerce is to access your functions.php file. If you’re not sure about the location of your functions.php file, you can find it in Appearance > Theme Editor > Theme Functions (functions.php). Once you’re there, you’ll be able to see all the code snippets that determine the text on your store’s filters.
Step 2: Modify the Code
Once you’re in your functions.php file, you can start modifying the code to change the filter text. First, you’ll need to locate the code that you want to modify. In this case, we’re changing the text on the product category filter. The current text is ‘Product Categories’, and we want to change it to ‘Shop By Category’. To do this, we’ll need to change the following line of code:
From: $args = __( ‘Product Categories’, ‘woocommerce’ );
To: $args = __( ‘Shop By Category’, ‘woocommerce’ );
Step 3: Save the Changes
After modifying the code, you’ll need to save the changes to your functions.php file. Once you’ve done this, you can go back to your online store and see the updated filter text.
Step 4: Add More Customizations
If you want to customize the filter text further, you can modify other lines of code in your functions.php file. For example, you can change the ‘Filter By’ text on your filter widgets or customize the text on your search bar. However, we recommend that you only modify code if you have experience with PHP and WooCommerce.
Step 5: Test Your Changes
The final step in changing your filter text in WooCommerce is to test your changes. Make sure that your filters are working correctly and that the text is displaying correctly. If you’re not satisfied with your changes, you can always go back to your functions.php file and modify the code again.
Changing the filter text in your WooCommerce online store can give your store a personalized touch and improve the user experience. By following the steps outlined in this blog, you can modify the filter text in your store’s filters and widgets. However, we recommend that you only modify code if you have experience with PHP and WooCommerce. It’s essential to test your changes and ensure that your filters are working correctly before launching your updated online store.
